Lauryn Shannon, aka Lauryn Pumpkin Efird, is the daughter of Mama June. She is best known for Mama June: From Not to Hot (2017), Here Comes Honey Boo Boo (2012), and Alana Thompson: Movin’ Up! (feat. Adam Barta & Lauryn Shannon) (2015). Eight months after welcoming son Bentley, Lauryn “Pumpkin” Efird is said to be expecting TWINS.
She was born and raised in the small Georgia town of McIntyre. June Shannon is her mother, while Michael Anthony Ford is her father. Lauryn “Pumpkin” Shannon rose to prominence in 2012 as a star of the hit TLC reality show Here Comes Honey Boo Boo. On a daily basis, the show follows former Toddlers & Tiaras star Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson and her eccentric small-town family.
Lauryn has had the highest of highs and the lowest of lows since her television debut, and her numerous ups and downs have been broadcast for all to see, thanks to her family’s reality TV fame. From having her family’s lifestyle questioned to being pregnant as a teenager to temporarily guarding her younger sister while her mother dealt with rumored drug difficulties and legal woes, this reality star had to learn how to be an adult well before her time.
The Shannon family has their own reality show, ‘Here Comes Honey Boo Boo,’ which aired for four seasons starting in August 2012. The Thompson-Shannon family made a substantial amount of money from the show. The show lasted two years before it was canceled in 2014. The premiere episode alone drew 2.2 million people to watch. In 2017, Lauryn’s mother launched a new reality show called ‘Mama June: From Not to Hot,’ which became their primary source of income. Despite the fact that the program ran into financial difficulties in 2019, the family kept its assets.
Her financial issues became a focal point in the show after her marriage to Joshua, particularly after she became Alana Thompson’s sister. This occurred following their mother’s incarceration in 2019. Lauryn, who was only little at the time, found the whole ordeal exhausting. ‘Toddlers and Tiaras,’ ‘Here Comes Honey Boo Boo,’ and ‘Mama June: From Not to Hot’ are among her past credits. She’s also been on ‘Steve Harvey’ and ‘Inside Edition,’ two television shows. She wiggled her way out of the quagmire and became a paid ambassador for the weight-loss program Boombod, which she promotes on Instagram.
She’s also been on ‘Steve Harvey’ and ‘Inside Edition,’ two television shows. Paid brand advertising on social media appears to be Lauryn’s primary source of revenue, aside from ‘Mama June: Road to Redemption.’ Lauryn Shannon (then 15) came out as bisexual in an exclusive interview with Inside Edition in April 2015.
Lauryn Shannon was born on January 7, 2000, in Georgia, the United States. She is 22 years old. Michael Anthony Ford is her father, while June Shannon is her mother. Jessica Shannon is her sister, and Anna Shannon and Alana Thompson are her half-siblings.
She is married to Joshua Efird, and they have a daughter named Ella Grace Efird. Lauryn and her husband Joshua Efird, whom she married in 2018, have two children together. Pumpkin announced the birth of her baby Bentley in July.
Lauryn’s third pregnancy was revealed after speculations that she was engaged to boyfriend Justin Stroud surfaced in June. The couple was recently seen shopping for jewelry at Kay Jewelers in Auburn, Alabama.
The estimated Net Worth of Lauryn Shannon is between $200K to $400K USD.
